What started out as a night of celebration for Aimee soon turned into a nightmare. Snatched by cruel, sadistic monsters – the worst creatures mankind has ever produced – she’s thrown into a metal container, among other victims too frightened to make a single sound. 

The game-keepers force everyone to play. They deliver torment and pain in equal measure. Every hunter has their own agenda and reasons to maim and torture. 

Detective Johnson is one step away from catching the killers. Wrestling with his instincts as a father to serve justice his own way, this is no ordinary case for him. Can he stop the vile sadists before they damage more young girls, as well as his own daughter? 

Aimee’s ordeal within the compound brings her to the conclusion that she’s no ordinary girl. But can she hang onto her sanity long enough to escape? And will she find a different way to play? 

This crime thriller will keep you riveted. It’s no ordinary story. 




This book, well, I’ve expected it to be very graphic and quite brutal. What I didn’t expect was how fast pacing it was and how well it covered subject of human trafficking. You can tell that author spend a lot of time to get her details right to follow this subject so closely and so accurately.

Raw and pure writing style made it feel very real and however none us wants to imagine anything like this happening to someone we know or ourselves, it’s great that it could be described in this way and definitely makes reader think about risks and about terrible background of human trade.

All characters felt very real, some even too real. All the horrible things happening in the book, the pain, suffering, even smell, everything is described with so much precision and you can’t stop feeling like you are there and suffering with them.

Aimee being one of the victims is followed the closest and the fight happening right before your eyes is nothing in comparison with the fight that is happening inside of her head. From becoming scared kidnapped girl, her character changes and develops and turns out to be a very strong woman with strong will to live and revenge.

This book comes with a warning of graphic content and I had to stop reading it myself few times as my imagination worked overtime and it created very vivid picture,  but my breaks were never too long as I just couldn’t stop thinking about it and needed to get back to the story.

This powerful book left me quite raw and open, I’ve been thinking about it a lot since I’ve read it and I’m quite sure it will stay in my mind for a long time. I would certainly rate it as one of the most unforgettable stories and I will recommend it to everyone (with a strong stomach).
